28th January 2020 - 15:30 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


The US Navy has named its incoming CVN 81 aircraft carrier USS Doris Miller.

The future USS Doris Miller is a Gerald R Ford-class carrier, which will support the navy with capabilities including crisis response and humanitarian relief, and strike power for major combat operations. As part of the carrier strike group, the vessels provide forward presence, rapid response, endurance on station and multi-mission capability.

This new class of aircraft carriers feature software-controlled electromagnetic catapults and weapons elevators, a redesigned flight deck and island, and more than twice the electrical capacity of the existing Nimitz-class carriers they will replace.
